Updated Sep 7, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups white vanilla baking chips
  • 1 box (8.9 oz) Nature Valley™ crunchy oats ‘n honey granola bars, unwrapped (12 bars)
  • Assorted colored candy sprinkles, nonpareils and colored sugars, as desired

Steps

  • 1
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips uncovered on High 45 seconds. Stir; continue to microwave in 15-second increments until mixture can be stirred smooth.
  • 2
    Working with one granola bar at a time, dip bar halfway into melted chips. Gently shake and slide bottom of bar on edge of bowl to remove excess. Place on waxed paper. Immediately decorate as desired, using photo as a guide. Repeat dipping and decorating with remaining bars. If chips have cooled too much, reheat. Let stand about 30 minutes or until set. Store covered in airtight container at room temperature with waxed paper between layers.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Since microwave ovens vary, watch carefully when melting white vanilla baking chips to avoid burning.
  • tip 2
    Take your time when dipping the bars into melted white chips. Tipping the bowl will help ensure you’ve got the deepest pool of melted chips to dip into, and holding the bar in the center while dipping halfway or at an angle will help, too.
